Short story first: I’ve been dreaming about playing the piano and composing music since I was 7 years old. I heard classical music and a pianist giving a concert at that age and it changed my life forever. I always heard melodies in my head, but haven’t had the chance to study piano until I was 15 but I’ve chosen guitar instead for some reason. 1 year before I moved to the UK, my sister bought a keyboard and I could bribe her and I borrowed her instrument. I’ve spent all my freetime trying to materialise my ideas, and recorded tons of instrumental songs.
I shared one on YouTube, after cutting a video montage using the scenes of a movie I’m not proud of at all, but the composition and the playing is mine. As I was not a pianist, I spent a lot of time re-recording individual small parts to make it sound perfect. I can play this song by now, as I spend some time playing the keyboard since September too.
